Q=CV so Q is directly proportional to V but in V=W/Q Q is directly proportional to 1/V.why?

Expert Answer:

But in  the definition of V i.e., V = W/Qo, Qo is the unit positive test charge. So, here Qo is not a varying quantity. Therefore, V at a point just depends on the work done in moving a unit positive test charge from infinity to that point against the electrostatic forces i.e., .
